I have a couple of tall skinny palm trees about 40' to 50' tall and I am 
thinking about hanging the center of a diople from one of them like an 
inverted V for 40 and 80 meters.  Any one know if the sap or water 
content of the palm tree is a problem?  How do I attach the antenna to 
the palm tree without killing it?  It wouldn't seem good to drive a 
spike into it and a tight band around the tree seems like it might be a 
problem as it grows.  I would like to rig a pulley near the top of the 
tree and run a nylon line through it so that I could pull the center of 
the dioples up and down without climbing the tree.  Anyone have 
experience with a "Palm Tree Tower"?
